About Laura Young, LCSW

While interning at a Refugee Family Center in London, Laura Young witnessed the inspiring, amazing resiliency of the human spirit to overcome severe hardships and to find the ability to thrive through determination and personal growth. Laura strongly believes that a person’s past does not define their future and they can become who they want to be. She values the importance of being honestly reflective when confronting the behaviors and thoughts that are no longer working in patients’ lives and hindering their growth. Her goal is for a patient to learn to be their own therapist, through integrating meaningful skills and patterns into their lifestyle. Laura holds a BS from Texas Lutheran University and a MSW from Texas State University. She appreciates Art Williams’ quote, “I am not telling you it is going to be easy. I am telling you it is going to be worth it.”

Every session with Laura is awesome and she has given me so many tools to use in my daily life. Everyone in my life has also seen the difference in how I deal with anxiety and depression in my daily routine. It is probably my phone but I have issues with Laura hearing me.. although I do the test in the beginning with all things saying I m good to go, she can t hear me or I have to be placed in low resolution. We sometimes just do over the phone instead of video chat.. still always a great session... she is the BEST!!

Laura Young was very professional and resourceful each and every time. Words cannot adequately convey my appreciation and gratitude to Laura Young and Mindpath for the invaluable experience of grief counseling in which I participated. I not only learned new skills for this journey but also remembered life skills for everyday success.

Laura is a highlight! I have been very pleased with the services provided by Laura. We have recently moved and I was a bit apprehensive leaving my other provider, finding another and being virtual. I felt that Laura was a wonderful match for me at the start and made the transition seamless. She is wonderful.
